“Jeff Hennen is easily among the best and most experienced drum instructors in the Dallas area. He has a long history of success with students (many of whom are now working professionals across the country)— his success in the highly competitive Dallas market — is partly due to a large number of word-of-mouth referrals. His curriculum is organized, planned, and paced very well, but is also highly adaptable to the students short — and long-term needs and goals.
I consider the time I spent with Jeff to have been extremely influential in my life not just in music, but in allot of areas that stemmed from learning the drums. Most significantly, Jeff helped me transition from being a novice to being a professional drummer. I went from purchasing my first kit, to playing in a popular professional working cover band here in the Dallas area within the first 12 months. I have been studying drums with Jeff off and on for over 2 years. Jeff has the ability to reach each student and find a way to relate and convey his thoughts to any individual. One of Jeff’s greatest strengths lies in his ability to breathe passion for art and life via the drum set. Jeff has a vast knowledge of his craft, a huge arsenal of lessons from his past and training he has attended, Jeff brings a unique ability to adapt to each individual's needs. Jeff is so well versed in the classical, popular, and avant-garde styles of drumming that he can lead a student on their desired path, patiently demonstrate how to play a difficult passage, and encourage them to play to the best of their ability.
I am thankful for having had the opportunity to work with Jeff and consider him a really good friend. “
